Program distributes rock properties for reservoir modeling

Stochastic distributed rock properties from a random number generator may lead to, in some cases, reservoir models that are more realistic than their deterministic counterparts.To obtain these values, the authors developed a computer program that generates randomly distributed property arrays and allows them to be directly entered into many reservoir simulators.The distribution of rock properties, for all practical purposes, is spatially unpredictable in carbonate and fractured granite (igneous) reservoirs where diagenetic processes have formed secondary porosity.For these reservoirs, one cannot contour petrophysical properties over the inter-well distances because these properties are re...
